Someone who understands the needs and is comfortable working and supporting students with autism is what they value the most so if you have a background in support work and want to get into a classroom environment this the perfect role for you.

• Manage/develop students behaviour
• Supervising classroom activities
• Report back to teachers about students work

The school has fantastic resources for creative subjects and hosts a high spec music facility, every other term they put on a performance for families and carers to see the work they do.

If this role is of interest to you, please apply ASAP as the school is keen to start short listing candidates.
